Full Show Summary
If you have never visited England and want to know exactly what to expect if you do, you might be looking for a kind of guide on British people and British culture. Luckily for you, there is “Little Britain”, a documentary series that depicts English citizens of all sorts imaginable and how they behave. Well, okay, perhaps not really. The truth is, “Little Britain” is a sketch comedy show that depicts various British stereotypes with comical exaggeration. The bulk of the bizarre characters presented on the show are portrayed by the show’s writers, Matt Lucas and David Walliams. The show is narrated by Tom Baker of “Doctor Who” fame and Anthony Head consistently portrays Great Britain’s prime minister. While it began life as a radio show, “Little Britain” is now a huge hit in its native country, which is especially ironic given how unflatteringly many of the characters are portrayed. There is a wide range of strange and comical characters portrayed in “Little Britain”. Among them are: Peter Andre, a BBC reporter who has a habit of greatly exaggerating the abilities of the Royal Family. Anne, a patient at a mental hospital whose doctors are always trying to help her lead a normal life, but are usually hampered by her unusual and sometimes destructive antics. Len Boothe, a tour guide, who, besides giving tourists historical information on the places they visit, also shares a bit too much about details of his personal life. Boris the babysitter, whose unconventional methods aren’t necessarily harmful. Maggie and Judy are two proper ladies who aren’t so much particular about the food they eat as they are about who prepares it. Sir Bernard Chumley is has-been actor who is caring for his disabled sister, whose disability he may or may not be directly responsible for. And these are just some of the characters you’ll see on Little Britain. You’ll learn more about the British people than you ever imagined.
